complete inventory of the are personal proposed and providing artists with ongoing advisory consultants. is star has been added to the sub consultant team they've been involved in the process and spent time assisting the artists so we wanted to make sure they were able to assist the outreach for the information and sure the artists have information updates and provided by someone they trust. so we'll also assist with the process of signing studios to individual artists and act as a point of contract and significantly lc s f will be evaluating all the artist buildings for the buildings long term management lc s f will
9:02 am
consultation a framework for star to have a protecting subsidy fund. the new budget is distributed among the consultants as follows: we have a budget which 11 thousand plus and 11 hundred thousand plus has been spent today on the first few phases approximately, six 1 thousand an additional 4 hundred plus thousand and that will take it is it is projected for the 15 percent communitycy it is 6 hundred and 45 thousand plus dollars this is not to exceed and is reimbursable and the cost to have the services is one
9:03 am
hundred percent reimbursable to the d b.a. that slide shows the budget broke down down by the consultant of 3 hundred and 95 thousand and cf s has a budget and ventura has a budget. as far as our progress to date in april and may have 2014 we bracketing brought the schematic designs for the kitchen and those building designs are in the development design stage we're trying to get the permit. at the may 21st commission staff performed 7 to 10 artists have challenges moving into the studios with $11 plus per square foot the staff has a solution
9:04 am
it's a condition of approval to further adjust the floor plans for the affordable ability and star has commented to try to raise fund for the artists. since then we've worked with the lenar the architecture design firm to have a main goal to have them foofbl and some of the concerns are mitigated with you some artists have affordability concerns. for those 5 artists the difference between what they pay and their estimated rent adds up to full subsidy less than $19,000. so while we have no operating subsidy to assist with that star has committed to precise try to
9:05 am
raise the funds to support of the artists. the fund star raises will help that will be for the solar panels to assist with the affordability of the building and i'm going to turn it over to star representative to talk about this >> good afternoon. my name is is marty i'm the president of the shipyard we call ourselves star. star does not have a fundraising history we're an advocate organization so we're embarking on a new venture we've supported ourselves and get one contribution through the tidas foundation so we're on new ground here but our goal is to make sure none of the artists
9:06 am
get left behind we have a board that supports this endeavor so the solar is the biggest monetary component. the solar is projected depends upon the system and use to save this is based on two quotes from solar installation companies both in the city and both in the district 10. the solar savings is projected between 18 and $28,000 a year. the way the solar saves will work there's a monitor on the system so we'll knows at the end of every cycle we wish to identify the electricity that is generated i'm insured that it is easy to translate that into a conflict of interests savings we've not accounted the accounting we know how to assess
9:07 am
the funds and get a vail on savings. so at this projection between 28 and $18,000 we feel the artist we've been able to identify that are going to need subsidy we feel we can help them all the details has not been accounted yet but just there are no public speakers on this item the solar didn't work we're working on a fundraising movement to try to get feed money for the fund so our annual presentation we expect you to come to we're magnifying that event and hope to generate between 10 and $15,000 in funds we're geology to have extra seed money we feel
9:08 am
that roadway as we know the issue to be we're going to be able to manage it we have some savings we've been able to stay within our operating budget every year so we have a savings in seizing every $20,000 if we need that before the solar money kicks in we feel like the money part is covered. the problem is those 5 artists have been identified based on the survey that ocii and star conducted at the beginning of the year and follow-up telephone conversations fill they're signed the lease we don't know exactly who will say oh, guess what i can't afford it or i can. so we're trying to plan a larger
9:09 am
margin of dollars in the event that there are unexpected you know situations that arises. we've done i think with the support of ocii we've done a commendable job in getting people to put in writing their intent but we have no way of requiring them to sign a biden document that's what they told us in the moment and a lot of people change their mind we're appreciative that the architect has reconfigured we had over 1/3rd of the artists asking for smaller spaces about a third of the arts are fine able to afford the size that is comparable to
9:10 am
their current space about a third of the artists wanted more rent the rent is amazing rent in san francisco for the artist space that's the lowest that anyone has heard about. it worked out more people wanted more space and lessee people wanted less space it worked within the configuration of the building we're within the 28 thousand feet of studio space we're there right now and again also something changes at the point people are presented with the requirement to sign a lease we believe that we will be able to cover any subsidy that people need so they're not displaced. >> thank you. >> thank you marty.
9:11 am
so in the up come on months star will focus on awe signing studios to artists the first tenants will be eclectic cookery they have 60 or 70 clients they'll move into a kitchen facility and prior to that any relocations plans will be presented to the commission in december this year and according to the schedule the replacement kitchen will start for planned kitchen replacement in june 2015 and prior to the artist relocation will be presented in 2016 and as early as october. that concludes my presentation. we're all here in you have

9:13 am
i'm called the ambassador for solar and i think you need to be in contact with the staff there because the mayor of the city just okayed a $5 million for this year this coming year so we need to be, you know, working together and making sure that solar is there because i have to show them my pg&e and my pg&e was $4.15 i'm in a house a big house. so the thing of it is - oh, i'd like to say that when the navy came about there was a administration boards set up because of the shipyard being a stirrup fund sites but what happened was the rap members

9:25 am
people's circumstances change. >> we'll also continuing our outreach to try - artists are like herod cats that's the people that have funny schedules we're continuing our outreach we want to be clear on the issue we're trying to nail it down the best we can we continue to talk to people and ask them to let us know if things change so we're aware. we have the records they're quite good >> we'll keep ocii we'll keep annabel up to data on a weekly basis we appreciate the support we're getting and want ocii to know exactly what information we're getting. >> very good thank you.
